Speaking English is one of the easiest things you can ever do… if you are American, Canadian, Australian, British, or from another English-speaking country. For the rest of you, though, it is hard. Not just hard to speak or understand, but hard to find the right materials to help you make your English-speaking dreams come true.
With that in mind, we designed Listen Up! Read Up! to start you on your journey towards English fluency. Just like when you first learned your native language, the key to English is listening, so the fifteen stories in this collection are all recorded twice, once at native speed and once at a slower speed to make sure you can clearly hear every word. Each chapter starts with a stunning piece of original art, followed by an interactive quiz, to make sure you understand what you have just listened to, and are ready to move on to the next story. We’ve chosen some really interesting stories for you to start your journey to fluency!
This audio/visual experience is designed for beginning to intermediate English learners of any age and can be used in both self-study and classroom environments.
